I have been messing with an app for windows vista all the way to 8 called Windows style builder. That tool allowed me to create custom themes for a patched system. Although it was great, there are in fact flaws that prevent me from doing certain things. Owning object desktop for 2 years now, I realized that I could try my hands at making a windowblinds skin. This windowblinds theme features a custom roll up button on the top right of each window. I still have much to do; Start menu, Drop boxes, Storage bars etc... I also have designed a dock Background to match the theme: https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/objectdock_backgrounds/429/
What do you think so far?
~Incomplete start menu
Yes on the sounds.
The start menu can be changed, some during layout and cutting, some wth margins, some with size of parts. No magic move all left or right button though.Did you use Vamps tutorials?
By the screen shot, if you shift your start menu image that far to the right, you will have to adjust text settings and margins to compensate, could be difficult for you. Have you considered just altering the taskbar. You can push it left or right or just extend it.

FYI, everything is slightly different on the vert taskbar, don't know if you have messed with that yet.
what do we type in in the code editor for the sounds to work? I have a roll.wav in the skin folder that I would like to use
I am not positive, but I believe the sound support is just for buttons.
Go to the usi2 frame section, under extra settings enable button sound support. from there you should be able to figure the rest, if not ,throw another post up.Hope it helps,DT1
